How was TOMS® started?
TOMS® was built on the belief in a better tomorrow. In 2006, our founder Blake Mycoskie pioneered the One for One® model after an inspiring trip to Argentina, where he met children who did not have shoes. Since then, our community has provided shoes, sight, and safe water to more than 96.5 million people around the world.
Today, our model is evolving. In addition to providing for basic human needs, we’re taking a stand on pressing human issues. And when people wear TOMS®, they’re taking a stand too—for the issues of today, and for a better tomorrow.
Is TOMS® a non-profit organization?
TOMS® is a for-profit company with giving at its core. In fact, our mission is to use business to improve lives. We work with non-profit organizations (we call them Giving Partners) and social enterprises to create impact, which you help generate through your purchase.

Who is TOMS?
